BMW unveils new 2 Series Coupé

BMW has taken the covers off the new 2 Series Coupé, which will arrive in the UK in March 2014.

The car effectively replaces the 1 Series Coupé, and will be launched with a choice of two petrol and one diesel engine.

The 2 Series is longer and lower than the 1 Series Coupé, with a wider track, longer wheelbase and significantly increased body width improve cabin space and are said to ensure better driving dynamics.

Following the three engines at launch will be a 218d (with prices starting at £24,265) and a 225d.

As well as essentials, a Bluetooth hands-free mobile phone system with a USB socket, DAB radio, BMW Emergency Call, multi-function leather steering wheel and rain-sensing wipers are also fitted as standard.



Over and above the extensive kit of the SE trim, which also includes rear parking sensors, auto-dimming rear-view mirror and 17-inch alloy wheels, the Sport equipment grade level adds sports seats and black high-gloss interior trim, as well as 17-inch alloy wheels. Modern adds part leather upholstery, Dark Pearl interior trim and an unique 17-inch alloy wheel design.

Also available from launch is the M Sport. This model combines bespoke M Sport Suspension (including a 10mm drop in ride height and 18-inch M Sport light-alloy wheels in double-spoke design), M aerodynamic bodystyling and High-gloss Shadowline exterior trim.

In addition M aluminium door sill strips, front sports seats, Aluminium Hexagon interior trim, M Sport leather steering wheel and cloth-alcantara upholstery underline the 2 Series Coupé’s sporting nature from the inside. Estoril Blue metallic paint can also be specified with the M Sport trim level.

Among the items on the options list are electrically adjustable and heated seats, Xenon headlights, an electrically operated glass sunroof and Comfort Access.

    The new 2-Series is a beautiful car and different from the 1-Series hatch. When you look at pricing the 2-Series doesn’t look cheap vs the bigger brother 4-Series. After adjusting the standard specification the cost difference between the two models is only £1500. At that level I would and I guess everyone will pick the 4-Series. Still love the 2-Series, what a great looking car.
